J Strength Cond Res 23(2): 587-592, 2009-This study examined the impact of an 8-week program of high-intensity interval training on high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), total cholesterol (TC), and the atherogenic index (TC/HDL-C) in 36 untrained men ages 21-36 years. Participants were randomly assigned to an interval training…

Effect of High-Intensity Strength and Endurance Training in the Form of Small Circuits on Changes in Lipid Levels in Men Aged 35–40 Years

The 8-week training program met the health-related fitness paradigm recommended for physical activity in men aged 35–40 years and confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed training in improving health indices.

Therapeutic effect of a moderate intensity interval training program on the lipid profile in men with hypertension: a randomized controlled trial.

It was concluded that the interval training program is an effective adjunct nonpharmacological management of hypertension and a means of upregulation of HDL.

Therapeutic Role of Continuous Training Program on High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol in Men with Hypertension: A Randomized Controlled Trial

It was concluded that interval training programme is an effective adjunct non-pharmacological management of hypertension and a means of normal regulation of lipid profile.

Effects of a high-intensity intermittent training program on aerobic capacity and lipid profile in trained subjects

Background Data regarding the effect of training on plasma lipids are controversial. Most studies have addressed continuous or long intermittent training programs. The present study evaluated the

The Potential for High-Intensity Interval Training to Reduce Cardiometabolic Disease Risk

HIT appears to promote superior improvements in aerobic fitness and similar improvements in some cardiometabolic risk factors in comparison to CME, when performed by healthy subjects or clinical patients for at least 8–12 weeks.

The effect of high-intensity interval exercise program on blood lipids and hormones in recreationally active adults

It seems that high-intensity interval training facilitates insulin to function more efficiently, so less insulin is needed for glucose transportation after traditional continuous aerobic running when considering fitness and health parameters.

Low-Volume High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) versus Moderate-Intensity Continuous Training on Body Composition, Cardiometabolic Profile and Physical Capacity in Older Women.

A short-term HIIT program is feasible and provides as much benefits as MICT in older women.

Effectiveness of a 16-Week High-Intensity Cardioresistance Training Program in Adults

High-intensity cardioresistance training affords flexibility for tailoring to meet desired health and fitness outcomes and makes perceivably daunting high-intensity functional training and multimodal sports training more accessible to general, traditionally nonathletic, populations.

Effects of high-intensity interval training on body composition, aerobic and anaerobic performance and plasma lipids in overweight/obese and normal-weight young men

The eight-week HIIT programme resulted in a slight improvement in physical fitness and a significant decrease in plasma lipids in the obese, and short duration HIIT may contribute to an improved cardiometabolic profile in the obesity.



Effects of an aerobic activity program on the cholesterol levels of adolescents.

While the exercise program appeared to have a beneficial effect on TC, HDL-C also dropped in 12 of 14 participants, and the analysis of covariance found significant reductions in TC in the training group.

Exercise intensity: its effect on the high-density lipoprotein profile.

Effects of different running programs on VO2 max, percent fat, and plasma lipids.

It is indicated that interval training may benefit aerobic capacity more than continuous running in young adults who have moderately high initial fitness levels and cardiovascular fitness parameters are not easily altered by short term exercise in young active men and women.

Exercise does not change high-density lipoprotein cholesterol in women after ten weeks of training.

Exercise and Improved Insulin Sensitivity in Older Women: Evidence of the Enduring Benefits of Higher Intensity Training.

It is suggested that long-term higher intensity exercise training provides more enduring benefits to insulin action compared with moderate- or low-intensity exercise, likely due to greater transient effects.

Effect of training intensity on physical capacity, lipid profile and insulin sensitivity in early rehabilitation of spinal cord injured individuals

The significant correlation between maximal oxygen consumption and insulin sensitivity indicates that, as in the able-bodied population, peak aerobic capacity is a predictive value with regard to insulin sensitivity in SCI.

Effects of low- and moderate-intensity training in spinal cord-injured persons.

The maximal test data revealed that 8 wk of LI and MI wheelchair ergometry training did not improve VO2max in SCI persons, and the applicability of exercise prescription guidelines established for the able-bodied to spinal cord-injured (SCI) persons was examined.

Influence of 12-week jogging on body fat and serum lipids.

It was concluded that moderate physical activities of different intensities have lowering effects on body fat and serum lipids.

Relationships of heart disease risk factors to exercise quantity and intensity.

Exercising more intensely could improve coronary heart disease risk factor level beyond that achieved by exercise amount alone; however, proof of causality remains to be determined from clinical trials.
